PURCHASING

Leverage the purchasing power of over 2,000 RSI clients with nearly $1.3BN in spend, RSI has negotiated manufacturer rebate programs for our clients to earn money back on their everyday purchases. RSI’s Purchasing Program is based on actual client item usage; Unlike Restaurant Buying Groups, we pass 100% of the earned rebate income back to our clients through a reduction of RSI service fees. Restaurants who have used our Purchasing Program have seen savings of 7% – 9% of their overall spend. Our Manufacturer Rebate Program is provided at NO EXTRA COST for our clients!

100% EARNED REBATES PASSED VIA RSI SERVICE FEE REDUCTION

Unlike Group Buying Organizations (GBO’s) our Manufacturer Programs and their rebates are passed directly from the manufacturer to you. One of our key goals in business has always been to enable independent restaurants to stay in business longer; to provide education and services which enable restaurants to thrive in an industry where margins are slim. We believe the RSI Purchasing Program provides a value to our clients that is unmatched.

ADVANCED PURCHASING DASHBOARD

Purchasing management doesn’t have to be a full-time, non-revenue producing job. Our advanced purchasing dashboard provides real-time updates on manufacturer rebates, negotiated purchase contract adherence as well as qualifying item savings. Access your dashboard quickly and easily within your RSI website!

MANUFACTURER REBATES NOT TIED TO SPECIFIC DISTRIBUTORS

Most often, Restaurant Group Buying Organizations require you to switch to a negotiated supplier. RSI’s Purchasing Program focuses on the Independent Operator; thus the manufacturer rebates are not tied to a specific supplier. Additionally, 100% of the manufacturer rebates are passed directly to your individual spend in a reduction of your RSI service fees.
